  1. MDF: median spectral frequency; CV: conduction velocity
  2. MDF and CV are expressed as absolute values. Mean ± SD of MDF, CV and FI are calculated
  3. on 100 patients and 50 controls.
  4. *Basal MDF controls vs basal MDF FM, p < 0.0001
  5. *Fatigue Index controls (MDF and CV) vs Fatigue Index FM (MDF and CV), p < 0.0001
